IF ALL three Valleys teams secure spots in the finals the achievement will be twice as nice for Tom Banks.
Not only does the 20 year old play for first division but he coaches the second division team.
This is Banks' first coaching gig outside juniors and the scene is suiting him and the team with second division sitting second on the ladder.
"They are second on the ladder which means they have secured themselves in the finals," Banks said.
"They have only lost three games this season so they are going really well."
The modest coach puts the good season down to the players in the team.
"You are only as good as your players.
"Sometimes it's a bit of a struggle to get people at training because they have other commitments.
"So that makes game days really good because everyone is there."
Banks said the transition from player to coach had been tough but it was worth it.
"It has been a bit difficult being a player/coach.
"You have to earn the team's respect as a coach and not just a player.
"But it can be good as well because you get to play with them and really see where they are improving."
Banks said he was proud of the teams' good season, especially being one of the smaller clubs in the comp.
"Some of the other places have a lot bigger player base.
"So, considering that, Valleys has done really well."
